9780141035376: The Unfinished Global Revolution: The Limits of Nations and The Pursuit of a New Politics

In the twenty-first century our economies are more globalized than ever - why not our politics too?

In The Unfinished Global Revolution former UN Deputy Secretary-General Mark Malloch-Brown argues that national governments are no longer equipped to address such complex global issues as climate change and poverty. Increasingly NGOs, civil society and the private sector are filling in the gaps.

Drawing on his experiences at the frontlines of international development - from Cambodia to Darfur, Washington to UN headquarters - Malloch-Brown argues that we must embrace these increasingly powerful networks to form a wholly new approach to global politics.

Review:

Rich in both analysis and recommendations, Mark Malloch-Brown deploys his enormous talent and shrewd understanding of the forces that are shaping our world to argue for stronger, more inclusive global institutions. Drawing from a wealth of personal experience on the frontlines of world affairs, Mark's book is authentic, compelling and immensely enjoyable. His message should resonate in national and international discourse for years to come. (Kofi A. Annan, United Nations Secretary-General (1997-2006) )

In this wise and passionate book, Mark Malloch-Brown draws on his remarkable experience at the global frontlines to illuminate both the challenges of international governance and the reasons why we cannot afford to give up on it. (Queen Noor )

Mark Malloch-Brown is one of those rare statesmen who is also a public intellectual. This book combines these two qualities, making for a fascinating and important read. (Fareed Zakaria, Editor-At-Large, Time, And Author The Post-American World )

The provision of international public goods will be a defining issue of the 21st century. This rare view from inside the kitchen shows why it is such a daunting challenge. (Paul Collier, Author Of The Bottom Billion )

In this exemplary memoir of an exemplary global life, Mark Malloch-Brown has put the phenomenon of globalization and the challenges it poses for national and international governance into an historical, ethical, and prescriptive context that makes this a handbook for understanding and shaping our world. (Strobe Talbott, Author Of The Great Experiment )

Mark Malloch-Brown, who had the advantage of working closely with Kofi Annan, is a man of extraordinary talent. This book demonstrates that he is one of the most influential thinkers today on how to cope with the globalization that is rapidly transforming the world economy. This is an important book; it is in fact a tour de force. (Jagdish Bhagwati, University Professor At Columbia University And Author Of In Defense Of Globalization )

The clash that will really matter, contends Mark Malloch Brown in this admirable book, is between international co-operation and old-fashioned nationalism...The author's conclusions remain cautiously optimistic. With every international agreement...we may be moving...towards the global revolution he advocates so eloquently. ( The Economist )

A distillation of thoughts about the need for international institutions and politics to rise to meet global challenges...What is attractive about Malloch Brown's book is the combination of detail, authority and humility derived from decades of trying to make international co-operation work. (Alan Beattie Financial Times )

A rather extraordinary debut: part autobiography, part political tract, part polemic, all bound together by a pilgrim's progress of learning experiences...You won't find a more stimulating thesis around this year. It's passionate, perceptive and rooted in years in the trenches of global strivings. (Peter Preston The Observer )

This, after three decades of international toil, is [Mark Malloch Brown's] first book, and a rather extraordinary debut: part autobiography, part history, part political tract, part polemic, all bound together by a pilgrim's progress of learning experiences... You won't find a more stimulating thesis around this year. It's passionate, perceptive and rooted in years in the trenches of global strivings (Peter Preston Guardian )
